How do I know if the door is well balanced?

You should be able to easily lift the door open with one hand, regardless of its size or the material it is made of. If you notice the door is harder to open, this means that its dead weight is heavier than in the ideal range of 8 to 14 lbs. (4 to 7 kg) because the springs are no longer counterbalancing the door properly. Call a GARAGA-certified installer to correct the situation.
